I am looking for someone who can repair this fiberglass body, install window glass, fabricate a rear wing and paint the body once i figure a way to mount the body on the chassis. Can anyone help?

After talking with Ron (hotrodz), he thought that is is a 1988 Beretta body. I found some very convincing pics on the internet that look like a dead ringer. Any comments or ideas anyone?

More pics of this project built by BlownDragFreak. My desire is to use the 1988 Beretta body and make this amazing car a shelf queen.

The fuel tank was built by Vann Smith

Emilio

I am going to try to build a body for this car in Carbon Fiber, i think that would be amazing. I am going to try and start producing new bodies of several styles in new material such as carbon fiber or Kevlar. I am hoping the new bodies will be stronger, lighter and that they will hold their shape better. I have consulted a professional composite specialist and he is going to help me with the process. We will see what happens. Al
